Editors note ShyGuyVIII

Welcome to Issue #58 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

I believe the last issue of the Bootleggers Buzz was the most terrible issue ever. Fortunately we have a great Buzz Team, which are here for the Bootleggers Community. This week the Buzz Team presents you one hell of an amazing issue! We covered all events of this week and we have some amazing columns for you. You want a short summary?! Alright, letís start with the news of this week!

This week we witnessed the return of Death Valley. In case you didnít notice their return, donít blame yourself. It wasnít a very big welcome party, since they got wiped after several hours by The Sacred Empire. A pity, but thatís how the Bootleggers politics roll! So what else happened this week? As usual, we witnessed a shooting of Asura. The shooting resulted in a drop of approximately 300 million. You missed anything else?! Well, we also witnessed a shooting of a new underground crew; Brothers. We at the Buzz received several messages of players who claimed that this new underground crew wasnít so new as the shooters claimed. What do I mean with that? Well, you should read the article! Last but not least, we witnessed the wipe of The Invisibles, which was performed by Fiasco, boss of No Redemption.

As you may have noticed, it was a week with a lot action. It was also a week with a new feature on Bootleggers. Am I talking about the new achievement update? Nope. Am I talking about the new crew update? Nope. Black jack update?! No. Of course, I am talking about the new Uno feature! This week the Elite Guard introduced a new feature on the Off Topic Forum; Uno. I suggest you take a look at the Off Topic Forum yourself, because itís very hard to miss those Uno-topics. Now, that was the news of the week. I have to admit, without the action this wouldnít be such an amazing issue; thank you!

News articles can be quite boring, therefore we have some amazing columns for you. First of all we have a column about the current kill system, which will hopefully lead to an interesting discussion. We also have a column about busting, which seems to be the new trend on Bootleggers. Even more columns? Hell yeah, we also have a column about the one and only BSF2000 and the lack of updates. As stated before, we have an amazing issue!

As always we have some interesting weekly articles for you. This week we have a new weekly article, named ĎThe Chatí. We also have another amazing Community Picks for you and a fancy Behind the Name. Right, thatís it right?! Well, not really! Last, but not least we have the Forum Post of the Week, touchť! I believe we proved that you donít need a lot writers to write an amazing issue. Unfortunately the Buzz Forum is pretty quiet these days and therefore we are looking for some active writers. Do you think you have the capability to become a Buzz Writer? Donít be shy and send me a message, I donít bite, yet! For now, please enjoy the huge, and awesome, read and have a good Sunday!
